Notre Dame was added to the list Tuesday night. The safety from Grand Prairie, Texas, shared the news on Twitter.

Okudah, a 6-foot-1, 199-pound prospect at South Grand Prairie, holds offers from every major Texas program, Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State and Stanford and has been invited to play in the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
